We stayed for one evening at the beautiful Blue Lily. We had business in Oudtshoorn and checked in late. Our hosts, the owners Juan & Lieschen, welcomed us ever so warmly. The guest house is their farm house. It is tastefully furnished with all the luxurious amenities you could ever need including wifi and the most delicious coffee! We fell in love with Roxy the sheep dog, she kept us company whilst sipping coffee on the balcony. We loved the wooden floors, thick walls and farm style touches! Our bed was incredibly comfortable, like laying on a fluffy cloud welcoming you to sleep. Wake up to the sound of peace. Nestled at the foot of the majestic Swartberg Mountain range this piece of eden is perfect for a long weekend - we wished we could have stayed on but will most certainly return. The endless views of the mountain range coupled with the immaculate gardens and graceful service makes this a must stay on your list for the area.

The blue Lily retreat is a beautiful place with wonderful hosts. The design is exquisit, but not in an artificial way, it makes you feel extremely comfortable! Lieschen and Juan are very caring and made our stay really a special one. Thank you!

The place was superb, as soon as we got there we had a warm welcome. Kids loved it, it was very peaceful and break fast was amazing too. We could not ask for more. It was just on the outskirts of oudtshoorn.
